IRVING, Texas — Josh Brent’s status on the Dallas Cowboys’ roster is expected to be determined before the team travels to training camp next week, according to an NFL spokesman.

The Cowboys will fly to Oxnard, Calif., on July 19 and hold their first practice July 21.

The defensive tackle is currently eligible to take part in practice even though he did not take part in the offseason conditioning program, organized team activities and minicamp in the spring. The team has prepared as if Brent would not play in 2013 but has been waiting for the league office to make a ruling.

Brent is charged with intoxication manslaughter after a December car accident killed practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown. Brent was released from jail Sunday after spending 11 days in jail for violating the terms of his pretrial release by allegedly testing positive for marijuana twice. The spokesman said Brent’s case regarding the failed drug tests is under review.
